Asking the husband for divorce

Q: I would like to know is it haraam for a wife to ask for divorce when her husband is abusing her and if he don’t give her talaaq she separates from him for 3 months to see if the marriage works. I am confused.


A: It is not haraam.

And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
